Numbers are form 2017.

Its the other way around actually. Below are the numbers:

Mexican Immigrants in 2017:
DFW: 9,468
Houston: 8,633

Mexican Immigrants in 2016:
DFW: 9,572
Houston: 7,857

Mexican Immigrants in 2015:
DFW: 8,075
Houston: 8,001

Mexican Immigrants in 2014:
Houston: 7,581
DFW: 6,782

Mexican Immigrants in 2013:
Houston: 7,679
DFW: 7,119

To be fair as it goes back, Houston had more immigrants from Mexico in 2011 and 2012 as well, but DFW had more from 2004 to 2010.

Default In which metro do non-hispanic whites and hispanics intermingle more?

Per the numbers, it's obvious that greater Houston is significantly more Hispanic than the metroplex- though the two are closer at the city level.


In which metro would you be more likely to see Hispanics intermingling with non-Hispanic whites? (in this case, let's define 'intermingling' as running in the same social circles, living in the same neighborhoods and- if applicable- attending the same places of worship)

If they were mostly middle class, wouldn't that make them as influential as whites? Do you mean poor/working class?

The one that's closer to Mexico, and the one closer to the coast (for reasons similar to Miami).

That's what I thought. Clearly Texas receives the most Mexican immigration more than any other state(except maybe CA), but we also tend to forget that there's a large Tejano population that has been in these cities for decades. And South Texas cities in particular have always had this population beneath the surface among the Mexican immigrant population. Houston and other gulf cities in Texas(such as Corpus) always felt like they had more Tejanos than Dallas and other North Texas cities. Whereas Dallas(like other non boarder/inland cities) seemed like Mexican population exploded almost solely due to Immigration.

I always said it reflected in the food too. The authentic Mexican food in Dallas is every bit as good as it is in Houston. However, the Tex-Mex in Dallas is not so great and its amazing in Houston.

Agreed. Makes sense. The further South you go in Texas, the better TexMex gets. I'm sure anywhere below I-10 the TexMex is some of the best out there.
